By engaging WADEs to deliver essential goods and services such as maintenance, catering or printing, procurement and purchasing can drive real social change.
A number of tools and resources will soon be available to WA local government authorities to assist with the policy and practicalities of undertaking social procurement from establishing an internal conversation through to engaging social enterprises in the supply chain
PROCUREMENT POLICY EXEMPTION EXAMPLE CITY OF CANNING
We encourage all Councils to amend their purchasing policy to include the option to purchase goods and services directly from WA Disability Enterprises (WADEs)where the value is less than $150,000.
The City of Canning is leading the way and within it’s Purchasing Policy has the option to source directly from WADEs at any value.
